Must admit I stopped going to these some years ago. Just was not worth bothering with. Only really go to Peterborough now. They don't really know what they are for any more. The Trade? The Public? Upmarket Antique? Downmarket vintage?

Which just about states the case Dan Laughter
Great as a social occasion and for a general overlook as to what is on offer in a transitioning Antiques trade.   But my specific interest is in studio pottery. For that it is pretty much a waste of time.  Few dealers know anything about studio, hence they always seem to overprice anything with a clear mark on it. The trend towards the catchall  'Vintage' has made it even worse,as there was an awful lot of mediocre studio pottery produced in the 60'-80's.
The few dealers who have decent stock I can generally see at Peterborough.

The summer fairs are great for outside casual stalls, not so good for the inside pitches who struggle to make costs. Been skipping stalling at any big fairs July/Aug for the last couple of years as a result. So would be interested in hearing how people did if they were selling.

the fair at Lincoln was small compared with previous ones,many of the long standing dealers didn't turn up despite the glorious weather and the buyers were few.
No studio pottery dealers whatsoever and a loss for all but a few dealers who paid to stand there.
I went on to the Hemswell antiques centres and found that the buildings were transformed! huge investment which has attracted a much better class of dealer and we spent a very enjoyable 3 hours looking around 6 or 7 huge buildings full of antique and vintage goodies
The Guardhouse has been totally gutted and re-roofed so it now has a first floor but best of all was the cafe serving great food at very cheap prices Lincoln and Newark fairs - Page 10 17354

The curse of the summer fair continues. Glad Hemswell's has a nice café. If I ever drive 4 hours to visit it I will certainly need some food Most Excellent Most Excellent

I was persuaded to try the Lincoln antiques and home show again today and wish I hadn't bothered. There were less than a quarter of the traders I'm used to at Lincoln and it was worse than a car boot fair.
NEVER AGAIN!
